Sunday Funday #2 – Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Modern Combat 5: Blackout – Gameloft

I wonder how long it will take for me to get completely annoyed by my computer auto-correcting Funday to Sunday…

So. Modern Combat 5. It’s a FPS (First Person Shooter) game. It’s bloody. It’s gory. You kill people. If that’s not your thing, don’t watch the video, so read the post, don’t play the game. Just walk (or click) away. You’ve been warned. I really don’t want to hear any complaints. Thanks.

This is one of those games I enjoy playing when I only have a few minutes and just want a quick distraction. The game does have a campaign story mode, but I usually just play the online multiplayer. The assault and recon categories are my favorites to play. As you can tell from the video, I’m absolutely terrible as a sniper or a heavy. I did gain a few points towards a new handgun today, though. Which is good, because I hardly ever use them. The first tier one doesn’t do much, but I picked up someone else’s after they dropped it when they died, and I’m not sure what tier it was, but it was pretty good.

I’m just proud of myself for trying out all of the classes for the video today. Variety!

The first game I played today went into triple overtime. The game won’t allow you to tie in multiplayer, instead one minute will get added to the clock until there’s a clear winner. I was staying neck in neck with this other guy, until finally some random player came out of nowhere to steal the win from both of us. It was certainly the longest multiplayer game I’ve ever played. And I love that there are different multiplayer game modes. You can go Free-for-All and have everyone be the enemy, or do a team or squad battle where you’ve got allies, ones you either know or don’t. VIP is just like a team battle, only one player on each team becomes the target for the other team (the VIP). And then there’s the classic Capture the Flag. I’m horrible at Capture the Flag.

If you go and take a look at this game, you’ll see that it costs money. Well, you should know that this is one of the few games I have that I actually paid for. It’s worth it. And if you’re still not sure, Gameloft does sales every once in a while. But there are no ads and you have unlimited access to everything in the game. For a game I’ll play for maybe half an hour a day, and have ever since I got it a month ago, the $4 was worth it.

On Twitch, AGeekyChick streams MC5 on Gameloft’s channel every Tuesday night, and I’m usually hanging out playing. The game doesn’t have a player search, but if you’re not in a squad, you can find me by searching for my squad. I’m currently in AbandoNaTion, and my IGN is Hissaelil. If you can find me, feel free to add me, and maybe we’ll play a match or two! 🙂
